Taxi $35 and 35-45 minutes or subway 27 minutes and about $8. Less if you read the Top Questions on this page and buy a book of discount tickets before boarding the train. There's a shuttle too, but it isn't any better than a taxi.

Take the train unless you have a lot of luggage. The walk from the train station to the port is 3-5 minutes.

I agree, Canada Line is convenient and easy. It would cost you $7.50 or $8.75 each (cash or credit card okay) depending on the day and time of day. When you arrive at Waterfront Station, you walk along the platform in the direction of the back of the train and up the escalator. Exiting onto the sidewalk, you will find yourself facing Canada Place about 100 m ahead and once there, the incline down to the embarkation area.

You could consider a book of faresavers as they do save money, but if you are heading just to the cruise ship as your post suggests, wait until you return to Vancouver to buy them. You might wait to see whether you will need a 1 zone or 2 zone booklet. If you visit Vancouver after.

I would get off at City Center. The walk from there to the hotel would be 5 minutes.
